Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
When was his last deworming?
How is his appetite?
How is his energy level?
Is he an indoor or outdoor cat?
It definitely sounds like he is sick. A possibility may be that he has intestinal parasites, or worms, that is causing his stomach to distend. Other options that make a belly enlarge would be retaining fluid from a heart problem or a mass or enlarged organ, both situations are very seriousl If he isn't eating well and has low energy - this is a sign he is sick. I think you should get in to see your vet and let them determine what the problem is before he gets much worse.
If you can, collect a stool sample to take with you so they can check for parasites.
